The most common steep slope roofing system you will on commercial buildings are asphalt shingles. This is because asphalt shingles are most often the most cost effective roofing system for your commercial building, they can be warranted for upwards of 50 years and they come in a wide variety of shapes, designs and colors. Be sure to ask your Sunrise Roofing Representative about the different brands of shingle and options we have to offer!
Though asphalt shingles are a great choice for many commercial buildings, they are not the right choice for a commercial building with a low slope roof system. Shingle manufacturers ask that at least one extra layer of roofing felt be laid down on any roof with a slope of 4/12 (4 inches of rise for every 12 inches of run) to 1/12 to uphold the warranty. Any roof with a slope lesser than the minimum of 1/12 cannot be shingled over, it will require a continuous membrane to shed water. Our team of representatives will help to inform you of any such instances and will guide you through your possible options. Contact us today for a free consultation and estimate.
